Oprah Winfrey has teamed up with the author, educator and Atlantic columnist Arthur C Brooks on a new book, Build The Life You Want: The Art And Science Of Getting Happier, to be published in September.
“I started reading Arthur Brooks’s column How To Build A Life during the early days of the pandemic,” Winfrey said in a statement released by publisher Portfolio Books, a Penguin Random House imprint.
“I found myself happily anticipating each week’s lesson, which turned out to be a recipe for growing forward. When I discovered he taught happiness at Harvard, I wanted to extend that to the rest of us.”
“As a social scientist, I look at the data and evidence on what leads to the greatest happiness, while Oprah knows how to reach people at the most important critical points in their lives,” he said.
“This book will introduce readers to the incredible science of happiness, based on the best research available.”
Other books written or co-written by Winfrey include What I Know For Sure, The Path Made Clear and Food, Health And Happiness.
